Almanac Day

For reasons I may never know, I’m an extreme dataphile. I love numbers. Even better, numbers in charts! Or numbers in tables!! Historical data. Stock data. Sports data. Voting data. It really doesn’t matter, I’ll read it.
That’s why I’ve always been a big fan of the World Almanac. All of us dataphiles love the World Almanac. As I kid, I used to digest these books whole.
The new version always comes out around Thanksgiving time, and I made my annual trek to the book store to get it. Nope, I can’t even wait for Amazon.
I have on my bookshelf the last 20 World Almanacs, and I guess I’ll be collecting them for the rest of my life. I just spent the last few hours reading the newest version from cover to cover. Imagine Burgess Meredith in that classic Twilight Zone episode. That’s me, just World Almanacs.
